's justice correspondent pete williams who has the latest on the suspects and the investigation. pete, good morning again to you. >> reporter: good morning, savann savannah. we've been told the names of these told. we're told that they're brothers. they've been in the united states for at least a year. one of them was living in the cambridge area. we're told that the man with the white hat, the one on the left, the one who is still at large, the one who is the reason for all of this police activity and this extraordinary lockdown in boston and the suburbs is 19 year old tsarnaev. he has a massachusetts driver's license. is a resident of cambridge. we don't know the first name of his brother. they obviously came here many months ago, at least a year ago. the other thing is it bears repeating, savannah, that all this started thursday night not because the fbi was moving into arrest them. there was no tactical operation planned. five hours after the fbi showed their pictures. they were not about to arrest them. five hours after the pictures became public, they apparently decided to make a run
will update us at 5:00. rhett's get the latest from justice correspondent pete williams. pete, after yesterday's confusion, yesterday and this morning even, it seems everyone is sort of on the same page now. what's the latest you've got for us? >> well, i think the fbi is having this news conference is they want to show some pictures. these are pictures of two men that they're most eager to identify, find, and interview based on their review of all the mountain of pictures they've received. it's really quite extraordinary when you think about it that the fbi made this request for pictures. they were inundated with an amount of data equivalent to 25,000 hours of youtube video. what they got was higher resolution, so it's not that many hours but that gives you the idea of the sheer tonnage of vehicle and they managed to look at great deal of that and hone in on two people whose movements and behavior have raised some questions that they would like to answer. they want to try to find these people. so far they've not been able. they can clearly see their faces, but they don't know their names. the
's justice correspondent pete williams joins me now with the latest. let's talk about specifically the charges, miranda rights, the public safety exemption, where are we right now on that issue? >> well, the normal rule is that when someone's irsed, they're advised of their rights. you have the right to remain silent. anything you say can be used against you. you have the right to a lawyer. if you can't afford one it will be provided, that sort of thing. if police don't give that warning then they cannot use any statements of the defendant in court. the exception to that is called the public safety exception. it's been extended by judges to terrorism cases. and the idea is that if you need information quickly to preserve public safety, you can ask those questions and still use the responses in court. but that public safety exception rule is limited. it only applies for several hours after fill in the blank. we assume after questioning starts rather than after arrest. probably no more than a day, day and a half. >> where do you come up with that? pete, let me interrupt you there. wh
killed and injured in boston a week ago. nbc's justice correspondent pete williams joins me now. let's clear up a couple things on the charges. the killing of the 346m.i.t. poe officer not included. explain it here for us. >> couple of points about this. numb per on number one, this charging document is a starting point. it is not the end of what they can charge him. it is to get the process going. there will be a grand jury indictment. it can be superseded as we go along so this isn't the totality of it. secondly, murder by itself is not a federal crime. so there's no federal strictly speaking, no federal jurisdiction over that killing. it may be that in the future they'll pull it into a broader conspiracy and they could add that to it, but standing by itself the federal government would not have jurisdiction. >> let's go to what did dzhokhar say during the questioning before he was read his miranda rights? what have we learned from that and what have we been able to confirm outside of what he said? >> well, none of it has been confirmed outside of what he says. he has been cooperat
at what these men were doing. it's motion video so they can watch their movements. >> all right. pete williams in our washington newsroom. no doubt a big step forward in this investigation. lester holt was on the street in boston when the photos went public at that very moment. he witnessed the start of what someone today called the first nationwide electronic crowd-sourced manhunt of the digital era. lester, good evening. >> reporter: brian, good evening. when the crowd watching us glommed onto the fact we were talking about pictures of suspects, the smartphones immediately came out. people started watching that video. one man said to me, i wish i knew them. the president was here just a few hours before we learned of the suspect. whether he knew about them or not is unclear. he had a message for whoever did this. we will find you. bostonians stood for hours in a line ten blocks long for a chance to publically share their sorrow and even their fears. >> i'm sickened by this. we live in such a free country and to have a sense of insecurity. ♪ >> reporter: inside the cathedral, tears
of terrorists. >> nbc news justice correspondent pete williams is live with us right now. i know you've been reviewing these charges. what's the latest on what you've uncovered? >> it is a fairly interesting sequence of things that the government cites here as evidence. first of all they say that there was a surveillance tape that shows what apparently is the second suspect, dzhokhar tsarnaev, the man in the hospital, placing the bomb at the second bombing. this is unrelated picture to what i'm talking about now. but this is the person we're talking about. but the surveillance tape was taken at the scene of the second bombing. you may recall that there was a restaurant there called the foreign restaurant. they say a surveillance camera there shows him walking up to the restaurant with his backpack on. that he takes a cell phone off, seems to be using it for a while, then seems to be talking on it. and then after he finishes the call, the first explosion goes off. he can be seen reto it. and i'm wondering if this isn't a little bit of confusion to see the pictures we're showing now. maybe we
investigator reporter pete williams. i don't think he takes a day off. and boston police commissioner ed davis and peter gammons will also join us. bill has our forecast now. >> all eyes on the midwest over the weekend. the heavy rains from last week caused epic flooding and in some cases even record flooding. six states dealt with major flooding problems including michigan, illinois, indiana, and as we went through areas of missouri and even iowa, unfortunately, three people did perish from rapidly rising floodwaters this weekend. a lot of the rivers did crest and they are slowly going to be going down from here. the one exception the illinois river. you can see just thousands and thousands of people were sandbagging all weekend long trying to keep these rivers from flooding their towns. the mississippi river is the biggest river in town in our country and it's at major flood stage. anywhere from outside of the border with iowa and illinois there around the squad cities southward is where it's cresting as i speak and will crest later this afternoon a little further south down in this region.
and corresponding documentary "dirty wars," and eugene robinson and pete williams. on why he doesn't work for cnn. first, here's bill karins with a check on the forecast. >> morning, everyone. we have two storms to talk about today. you'll need your umbrellas in the numerous locations. let's start with the east coast. there's a large storm forming off of eastern north carolina. this is not going to affect most areas in the mid-atlantic. just up there in new england. far enough offshore that a lot of the heavy rain is going to be confined into eastern new england. here's what i'm talking about. notice the rainfall predictions have very little if anything from philly to baltimore to d.c. but do produce up to 2 inches of heavy rain in boston through cape cod. from late this afternoon tonight into tomorrow morning. be prepared for that in eastern new england. so today's forecast, the rain will develop during the day in boston, out on long island a few showers, but i think new york city remains dry. buffalo to pittsburgh, you'll have clouds increasing with showers later tonight. now to the flooding st
moving through the crowd at the marathon on monday. nbc's pete williams reports these two individuals will also now appear on official fbi wanted posters. the fbi had a choice about how they were going to talk about these individuals today. it is a choice that has to be inflected by our recent history of misidentify iing suspects in high profile domestic attacks, attacks like the anthrax attacks in 9/11 and olympic park bombing in 1996. the names and faces that appeared in the press early on in those investigations did not end up being the individuals held responsible for those crimes. given that history, given the fact that news organizations like the "new york post" are already showing an eagerness and shamelessness about publishing jump to conclusion statements about suspects in the boston bombing, information that is wro wrong, we'll have more on that in a minute, given that history given what's going on with this intense interest and the media being rather irresponsible about some of these matters, the fbi could have played it safer than they did today, they could have labelled t
, pete williams has reported on. and we looked at that carefully, and that's the scene of the blast of the second bomb. so this guy has planted the second bomb. we looked at the dark hat guy as they walk. it's just interesting that the dark hat guy looks a little older, walks in the front. and his bomb detonates first. they don't have a video of him planting the bomb. but the -- special agent in charge said they pieced it together. and what they pieced together was the backpack. i'm sure they pieced together the backpack. it's possible he could have laid his hat on the backpack. so they could have found the hat and the backpack. but they were able from the video to say a backpack looking just like that was there. they probably have video of these guys communicating and talking. that's an interesting report about his reaction. these cowards are probably exhibiting some glee and joy at this, you know, vulgar thing they did. but that's going to be they're undoing as well. >> yeah -- >> they underestimated -- they underestimated law enforcement. and they underestimated the resilience of
. this morning fbi agents are making significant progress. pete williams is nbc's just correspondent. pete. good morning. >> good morning, matt. the fbi is very eager to identify, find and talk to two young men who displayed the behavior they're looking for, someone who walks up to the spot, leaves a backpack away and walks away just before one of the bombs goes off. the fbi says it has pictures from several different sources showing the same thing happening at the spot where one of the bombs exploded. the sequence of explosions, 13 seconds apart can be heard on this videotape of universal sports network technicians making final preparations to cover the end of the marathon event. a key image investigators say was captured by a surveillance camera with a bird's-eye view mounted high up across the street from the second bombing site. officials say it shows a young man talking on his cell phone who sets down what appears to be a heavy backpack and dashes away moments before the second bomb goes off. because he was on a cell phone, investigators are checking the logs of the hundreds of people using
done in the right way. >> nbc news correspondent pete williams has an update. what are you hearing regarding this video? >> video and still pictures is my understanding, tamron. >> yeah. >> we may see them today, we may not. this is kind of a back-and-forth thing. it seems, i guess, likely at this point that we will. and it should be clear if they do show these pictures today, these are the people they're most interested in talking to. you know, i don't think anyone at this point is saying the fbi has quote/unquote, found the bombers. they see the faces but they don't know who they are and if they show them publicly, they're going to be asking for public help to identify them so they can find them, talk to them and figure out what was going on there. it's always a difficult job to balance this, tamron, because on one hand the agented would prefer, i'm sure, to conduct this investigation on their own with a lot of tips that will turn out to be wrong but at the same time the longer they way, the more these people would get away or much worse try to do it again. there's competing pres
if he wants one? >> well, i trust what pete williams says on these things and there is a period of time, 36 to 48 hours. it's somewhat fudgible. it will defend when aware enough and coherent enough to begin to answer questions. but remember, the exception is about imminent threat. does he know of any other terrorist plots? has he planted any other devices? it's about the immediate safety and security of american citizens. and once law enforcement has concluded that is not an issue anymore based on his questions, they'll then move on to what will be the traditional questioning and interrogation within the constructs of the civilian law system. >> that's to figure out what went down in all this, but how do investigators begin determining whether or not they were part of a larger terrorist organization? >> well, as we've heard earlier, the high value interrogation group is comprised of an interagency group of individuals with tremendous experience in interrogating and questioning individuals like tsarnaev who is in custody right now. they will begin that process. they'll certainly find oth
. >> lester in boston thank you so much. nbc's justice correspondent pete williams following overnight developments in the investigation. pete, good morning. it seems there is no clearer picture as to who may be behind this. >> i think that's certainly true although there is high hope that they will be able to answer that shortly. they know for certain the attack involved two bombs, but many other packages found on the street were deemed suspicious and destroyed and that took a lot of time last night. there were many packages to check because after the explosions officials say many people simply dropped what they were carrying and ran, leaving their packages behind. there were conflicting accounts whether investigators found two unexploded bombs. this morning a senior law enforcement official says there were no unexploded devices, just the two that went off. several officials say the bombs that went off included shrapnels to multiply the injuries, bebes and ball bearings. investigators are investigating video to see if they can see individuals placing the packages. there is a video fro
. thanks very much. pete williams is in washington with new details on the investigation. pete, good morning. and let me ask you about the charges. unlawfully using and conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction resulting in death and malicious destruction of property. anything surprise you with what he has been charged with and hasn't? >> reporter: no, not what he has been charged with. this is fully what we expected. it's a charge that could carry the death penalty in the federal system. massachusetts doesn't have the death penalty in the state system. he is a ehe's not charged with killing the campus policeman. they could possibly include it in a later indictment or perhaps the state could bring charges. >> so the suspect is gravely injured. he's in a hospital bed and he is's answering did we act alone, were we affiliated with any larger terror group. he says no to that question. do the authorities think his answers are credible? >> reporter: well, they don't know. this is one thing they're going to have to check out, but he has said they were not in touch with any overseas gr
how to proceed. matt? >> pete williams, thank you very much. edward davis, commissioner of the boston police department, joins us now. commissioner, nice to see you. good morning. >> good morning, matt. >> you've got a suspect in the hospital in critical, but stable, condition. unable to speak, but answering preliminary questions in writing. based on those early answers, are you 100% confident there is no future or further threat to boston in terms of accomplices or unexploded devices? >> this is very early in the investigation. we're satisfied that the two main actors, the people that were committing the damage out there, have been either captured or killed. there's still an open question as to exactly what happened in this investigation and there are enormous investigative resources being poured into that right now. we can't say with 100% certainty that -- anything actually at this point. >> do you know if this suspect has in any way given any indication of what the motive was for these attacks? >> no. it would be impossible for me to discuss anything about the suspect or the invest
